If you see a large increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites aiming to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is available. Regrettably, that's something rather frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do so with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, included with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will enable you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very efficiently. It includes an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have within the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only have to select the one you need and then enter the IP address that has to be blocked. If you wish to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just have to input the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That shall block all 254 addresses, so you will not need to type them manually. Since all the IPs that you add in this section shall be listed, you may easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button associated with the particular IP.
